July 11, 2019


34f5628bb17b5f8d07ecf2c122b579f1_9dc2d698469a81cd.jpgFor over 100 years, Harley-Davidson® bikes have had a deep history when it comes to motorcycle racing. Some Dallas riders buy it because they're looking for an entry-level Harley-Davidson®, and this one is a solid bike that fits almost any budget. Others want a minimalist bike with raw Harley® power built for speed and agility. But which Street® model is right for you? Let's look at pricing and performance for Street® 500, Street® 750 and Street Rod™.

H-D® STREET REVIEWS

Cycle World's Blake Connor rode a Street 750 soon after Harley® started production. His review says he took the bike through Austin's urban streets and down Texas Hill Country back roads. He says he liked the following:

  • Ultra low seat and comfortable seating position
  • Natural handlebar position
  • low-slung fuel tank position
  • good ground clearance
  • Ride quality even on bad pavement
  • excellent maneuverability with neutral steering and good ground clearance

Lemmy reviewed the revised 2017 model and compliments H-D's® attention to detail with things like the heel guard on the muffler, improved brakes and streamlined presentation.
